About this book


This book presents a comprehensive introduction to quantum physics. Part One covers the basic principles and prime applications of quantum mechanics, from the uncertainty relations to many-body systems. Part Two introduces to relativistic quantum field theory, and ranges from symmetries in quantum physics to electroweak interactions. Numerous worked-out examples as well as exercises with solutions, or hints, make the book useful as accompanying text for courses as well as for independent individual study. For both parts the necessary mathematical framework is treated in adequate form and detail. The book ends with selected biographical notes on pioneers of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory.
